Once every cycle I get to share stories about the
My students always seem to know something about this idea.
There was a huge festival here in St. Louis last Summer
one of the many things that caught the attention of several of my students
was the Chinese Wishing Tree
There was a wise tree in the movie "Avatar."
Not long ago there was a PBS Special that included information
about a Holy Site in Great Britain
where people attach items representing something they wish to leave behind
We've also shared magazine and newspaper clippings
with photos of families making a home under huge spreading trees,
people living in trees
just last year there was a nifty article showing a photograph
of a barber shop
under a tree
All of this helps explain about a place called Shekham
where Abram and Sarai enjoyed living.
D'you have a special tree??
have you see the "leanin' tree" in the comic strip "Rose is Rose?"
love & love,
